University innovation as a driver of Europe’s twin transition

EUA will present the findings of its survey on innovation at European universities at an event in Brussels. Policy makers, university leaders and other research and innovation actors will discuss the findings and analyse a Europe-wide picture of university innovation. They will also discuss EUA’s key recommendations to enhance universities’ contribution to European innovation ecosystems with Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth. The outcomes will contribute to the development of the Commission’s upcoming plan for strengthening the pan-European innovation ecosystem.

 

As established drivers of their innovation ecosystems, universities display the necessary strategic attention to innovation that can make Europe a leader in the green and digital transitions. However, their growing focus on innovation is outpacing the availability of support systems, as well as requiring them to adjust their own institutional approaches for a more disruptive role as innovators. Aligning these systems and approaches with universities’ innovation ambitions will be crucial to fostering a more sustainable and digitally connected society. The EUA innovation survey, developed in collaboration with the EUA Innovation Ecosystems Expert Group, aimed to measure the extent of this alignment and provide evidence to develop recommendations for universities, policy makers and funding agencies.
